Our 1st Lusophone Youth Summer Program at York University: a success!

20170710_095758I had the privilege of co-organizing the York University’s Portuguese and Luso-Brazilian Program’s 1st Youth Summer Program, which took place throughout the week of July 10-14. This free week-long program for high students in the ages of 10-14 years old, provided students with a range of educational activities that mixed learning with recreation, as well as breakfast, lunch, snacks, and public transit fare. Besides introducing students to the Lusophone world, both global and local communities, it also allow them to experience university life. The program included a rich roster of presenters, who offered lectures, personal advice, and hands-on workshops on language, history, music, dance, theatre, painting, filming, archival research, digital media, and other fields. See here for an illustrated overview of the program.

Looking forward to doing it all over again next year.
